  • 50 Studebaker - Taurus wagon

    Will the madness ever end![] There is a 87 Taurus wagon on eBay with a 50 Studebaker front end grafted onto it and 50 Studebaker tail lights. Probably no one on this forum will be bidding on it, but if you want to, I would suggest checking out the vendor's feedback. It is one of the worst I have seen.

    Oh my gosh!!!
    That is the weirdest thing I've ever seen. Horrific, yet you're somehow drawn to it.

    And this coming from a guy who would love a late model Taurus wagon (the oval "mother ship") to customize into a two-door "Yesmad".

        They even put the bump in the rear doors to match the original rear fender shape.

        It's really not "that" bad looking!
        But it's a FOUR cylinder....
        And did you see his feedback?

            I like the car too...especially that rear quarter. I think the pontoon part of the front fender (in front of the wheel) is a little too heavy looking to be proportioned correctly, however.

            If you need to drive a Taurus wagon, this one would sure be a lot more fun than a stock one [8D]

                If I recall, this is the second pass for this car (I can't imagine someone else doing this). Somehow I recall that it was siver before.

                    The rear looks good, the front is horrible. I think a 1952 front end would have looked better; a front bumper would help.

                        Yes Guido, you're correct. I saw it too and yes it was silver.

                            Not in my wildest imagination would I have mated a 50 Champion to a Taurus wagon. Although I have to admit, the Stude front end looks a whole lot better than that "Guppie Mouth" that the Taurus had originally!
